Because budgets are tight for everyone and training for school nutrition professionals of all levels is more important that ever right now, SNA has been working with the official ANC hotels to make attendance more affordable for SNA members and exhibitors. I’m pleased to report that new rates are $119 per night for Mandalay Bay, $149 per night for THEhotel, and $59 per night for the Luxor.
ANC is the one event I make sure is on my calendar every year. I find that it benefits not only my career, but also my program and the students we serve each day. Here are just a few reasons why I continue to find value in attending ANC year after year.
- The wide variety of education sessions. This year’s sessions will address everything from charge policies and behavior-changing nutrition education, to food allergies and financial management during tight economic times.
- The exposure to a full array of vendors and products all under one roof. The ANC Exhibit Hall allows me quickly compare products and resolve issues with vendors.
- The opportunity to meet professionals who represent districts from all corners of the country—friends that I wouldn’t have otherwise ever met. At ANC, I often work through operational problems and issues I’m having simply by talking with peers.
For those of you who are regular ANC attendees like me, why do YOU come back year after year? Share your thoughts below!
